The track and the...

Beacon Junction (Green Line) Derailment 6/8/2019

Around 11 AM on Saturday 6/8/19 a type 8 (#3847) derailed between Kenmore and Fenway. Way too early for me to be making this speculation, but this picture (third and fourth at the link) really makes it look like it split the switch to the Riverside branch. The same passenger reported it was a one ca...

Re: Framingham grade crossing vs. marathon

Bishop St. gates seem to be getting whacked pretty often recently. Back to the original question: 1907 marathon: lead pack of 10-12 runners made it across a crossing before the rest of the field got stuck behind a freight. Unclear which crossing - could have been the Framingham Secondary or the Holl...

Re: Framingham/Worcester Line Questions

As a daily rider I have a hypothesis that the schedule for semi-express trains could be tightened up *before* Boston Landing. It seems that the express and semi-express trains frequently slow down a couple of miles before Boston Landing. In the cases of trains that stop at Boston Landing, it seems ...

Framingham Station is now managed my MWRTA, so they put the bike lockers in and they manage them.
